United States of America – Stuck in Customs

Miami at Dusk

Daily Photo – Miami at Dusk

Miami is a pretty cool place to shoot because it’s an interesting-looking city and there is a ton of water around to get all sorts of shots. I set this one up to be a bit of a longer exposure to smooth out the water and give the clouds a bit of a trippy effect. And, then, of course, adding a little HDR makes it even better!

Burlock Restaurant in Ft. Lauderdale

Daily Photo – Burlock Restaurant in Ft. Lauderdale

What a cool-looking place eh? I love these kinds of funky restaurants that have all kinds of crazy lighting. This is one of those open-plan styles where the chefs are in the middle and you get to watch them all the time. I’m not a chef, but I think it would be more fun to be out in the open like this rather than stuck in some back room.

Daily Photo – Swirly Canyon

Here’s a cool view of Antelope Canyon. There are really no bad photos of this place… I think that’s why photographers love it so much! I spent a few hours in here getting waaaaaay too many photos. I still haven’t gone through all of them.

All Systems Go!

Today’s big news is that the new NFTs are now live on Makersplace take a look here! As with the previous creations a chunk of the sale goes to the artists and subjects of the images with some also going to charity. I’ve also taken on board feedback from the Foundation experience. This time round the process to get involved is much easier as you can pay by card or ETH… auctions start at $1 with a wide range of configurations available including probably my best-known Burning Man image as a 1 of 1 Edition, an image which hung in the Smithsonian and some of my favourite scenes across the years.

It’s probably also worth saying that for the video NFTs I’ll be providing the full quality video file to the winner(s) which means you can enjoy things like the Temple Sunrise in 4K as a wallpaper on your UHD TV or high res display nice and easily.

Stay awesome.

The 24 Hour Countdown Begins

Just over a month ago we raised a whole bunch of money (over $10k) for charity and artists on my first NFT auction. So, let’s do it again! Starting tomorrow, and you can preview some of the art now, I’m going live on Makersplace with a new batch of Burning Man goodness.

The good news for any of you who struggled a bit with Foundation and cryptocurrency wallets is that Makersplace accept card payments and do all of the crypto stuff for you. The best of both worlds and a chance to help out some artists who have struggled through the pandemic! Here’s a little low-res preview of one of the items available.

New NFT Drop Incoming

Cool Video

I’m not sure how I came across this video… maybe a recommendation after my Mooji meditation – but I think it’s pretty cool.

And now for that NFT News…

NEW NFT Goodness!

Here’s a sneak preview of the drop coming in just a little while! It’s my first time on Makersplace, and I have no idea how it will go! What I can tell you is that it will be a lot more straightforward for you all to get involved in as Makersplace allow card payments, not just payments via a Cryptocurrency wallet. 🙂

Bridges in Pittsburgh

Daily Photo – Bridges in Pittsburgh

I don’t know if I ever would have visited Pittsburgh if it wasn’t part of the USA tour, and that’s a shame because it’s a really cool city. The city is great to shoot and the bridges always make for a good subject matter. It’s also a great walking city where you can just criss-cross the river as many times as you need to find some interesting shots.

Exploring Hudson Yards at Dusk

Daily Photo – Exploring Hudson Yards at Dusk

I’ve always wanted to visit this Stairway to Nowhere in Hudson Yards, so I was sure to block off an entire day for it. There are literally no bad photos of this thing, so it’s what I call a high-target environment! In these situations, I challenge myself to get as many “different” kinds of photos as possible. This one is probably one of my favorites.

The Odd Number Theory

Daily Photo – The Odd Number Theory

I don’t remember exactly where I heard this theory, but I kind of like it. I believe it had to do with street photography and capturing an interesting number of people. For some reason, an odd number looks more interesting than an even number. I don’t know why. I don’t even know if I believe it…but maybe. I try to do it with objects too… apart from here, where there are 6 cool trees…

Passport Sunday Blast from the Past

I was just showing this video to some friends, and that reminded me of the “Making Of” video! That is now one of many videos unlocked with your Passport membership which release every Sunday!

And here is the Passport vid…

The Making Of 80 Days

How about a blast from the past? Here’s one of my first how-to videos. I just watched it again, and it’s kinda lame… I’m not really selling it, I know, but it’s interesting to see how much better I’ve become at explaining things. Anyway, enjoy this 18-minute video of me rambling and trying to explain something.
